She is beautiful! I cannot stop looking at her eyes. I really appreciate the joy you capture, even where there is hard times. It is not deceptive but rather, encouraging. There is still hope. Incredible light and perfect tones with just a hint of colour. Superb

Hello Friends

Thank you everybody for your comments and appreciations. I have not removed the dark patches in her teeth, the whiteness of the greying hairs in the sides of her face, for those marks the hardship she has undergone throughout her life. And yet she is lovely with her smile and the red ribbon that she wore on her hair. I appreciate that you liked it. I am submitting the colored version of this photo for your comments. Thank you all.

Jayanti Basu , December 10, 2008; 06:11 A.M.

This one is by far the better. A well deserved 7/7.

Perfect timing. I'd have cropped it differently, but that's neither here nor there.
